Since these names are going to be typed rarely (if at all), and then
only by wiki administrators, having the name be longer actually makes
more sense than choosing a short, common name.

Because this removes these words from non-PmWiki uses; i.e.,
a site about Linux wouldn't be able to have a "Config" group
to describe linux configuration.
Actually, in thinking about this, some pages that go into the
"config" group might not be configuration items at all, but just
other related pages. So how about "WikiEtc" or "PmWikiEtc"
instead? Perhaps this could then also be a good place for
Cookbook things that aren't really "configuration" pages.
